Maui Banana Cake with Lime Coconut Glaze

Posted by manÜ

2 cups of whole wheat pastry flour
¾ teaspoon of baking soda

½ teaspoon of baking powder

½ teaspoon of salt
1 cup of sugar
½ cup of low fat vanilla yogurt

2 large eggs

1 ½ cups of smooshed ripe bananas

3 tablespoons of dark rum (or coconut rum)

Or 1 teaspoon of rum extract

1 teaspoon of a good vanilla

1 teaspoon of coconut extract (optional)

½ cup of unsweetened coconut flakes

Lime Glaze
½ cup of powdered sugar
1 ½ tablespoons of lime juice

2 tablespoons of chopped macadamia nuts

2 or 3 tablespoons of coconut

Turn on the tropical sun (the oven) to 350 degrees. Whisk the flour, soda, baking powder, and salt in a bowl till all mixed up. Combine the yogurt with the sugar and beat with a mixer till well blended. Add the eggs beating as you go. Stir in the bananas, yogurt, rum, vanilla, coconut extract, next. When everything is well blended add the flour mix and combine till just moistened then barely mix in the coconut. Pour batter into either a bread loaf pan or a cake pan, depending on the look you want. Bake the loaf for about one hour or the cake for about 35 minutes, while the palm trees sway. When the house fills with the heavenly scent of banana bread, check with a toothpick to see if it is done. Cool 10 minutes on a cooling rack and place on a deserving platter. Whip up the lime juice with the powdered sugar and drizzle over the warm cake then sprinkle with mac nuts and coconut. Take a bite and do the hula! Ono! (Delicious in Hawaiian)
